Wooden Mechanism for Book Box

06-01-2010 02:07 PM by Triumph1 | 8 comments »

After posting the pictures of The Rising I was asked by a couple LJ’s to post more information on the mechanism I designed to lift the book. Since I do not have the box anymore I took some screen shots from the 3D modeling software I use for initial designs (SolidWorks if anybody is interested. It is the program I use at work). Below I show the mechanism in its lowered position. Here it is half way through its motion. And here it is at the top of its motion. I think t...

Table saw island #3: progress continues

06-01-2010 11:24 AM by 559dustdesigns | 5 comments »

I left off cutting the top in my last post. I got the top to fit the saw and extended the miter slots with a router. I than attached the top and routed the edges (with a pattern bit) to fit and glued and nailed it in place. The next important step was to level the 8 feet on the cabinet and adjust the bolts on the base of the saw until the table saw and island are level and the saw is just a hair higher than the surface of the island. I used bench levelers from woodpeckers for the feet and al...

Dan's Blackbutt Roubo Bench #17: Back on your feet and looking like a real workbench

06-01-2010 10:45 AM by DoctorDan | 3 comments »

I’m making progress on the workbench. Over the past few weeks I completed the glue up of the base. I assembled it upside down to allow work on the base without having to manipulate the heavy top. This morning with a little bit of planning, levering and muscle power, it’s back on it’s feet. It’s actually starting to look like a workbench now Now the fiddly pieces… end caps… vices… The individual components are largely complete but the assembly h...

Bamboo Gloat...

06-01-2010 06:39 AM by Mark Whitsitt | 7 comments »

I picked up a couple hundred sq ft of solid bamboo flooring, 3 1/2” wide for (literally) next to nothing… What do you make of that? No, really, what DO you make of that? We’re not going to use it for a floor any time soon (maybe someday when we finish the basement…) In the mean time, any thoughts on what you’d make from bamboo? Mark

Local woods!

06-01-2010 05:33 AM by WoodenSoldier | 5 comments »

I’ve been bitching for a while about the price of wood here in Hawaii and then as fate would have it, I ran into a guy at an art show who turns bowls. I got to talking with him and he mentioned that he sells wood too. I stopped by his place today and he sells all local woods for super cheap (comparatively). He had some amazing stuff and he gets it all for free through his work so he doesn’t really worry about the profit! Awesome stuff. Here’s what I bought! From lef...

Extremely Average #150: Back to Woodworking

06-01-2010 05:25 AM by Ecocandle | 0 comments »

Hello LJ’s, I enjoyed my weekend with Mom and Dad. Getting home and back to cutting dovetails was nice though. I cut the 4 sets of pins for my next box, in the same amount of time (plus 3 minutes) as I did for 2 sets of pins just last week. The quality was also improved. I am looking forward to tomorrows session…which may start now. ;-) Brian

The Great Garage Reorganization and Shop Improvement Act #7: Drinks anyone?

06-01-2010 05:17 AM by captkerk | 6 comments »

I had planned on adding a work cart of some kind to the shop after I got my other projects done, but when my neighbor said he could get some old airline beverage service carts from work, my timeline changed. He was able to get me two carts with a full compliment of trays and I got to thinking that they would make a great cart if I joined them together and just added a top. That sounded great in theory, but they were a little too tall, especially when putting a top on them, too. So I decide...
